The International Criminal Court, or ICC, has issued a second arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
In a statement on its website on Monday, the ICC says it's charging the Sudanese President with three counts of genocide committed against the Fur, Masalit, and Zag-hawa ethnic groups in the Darfur region.
In March 2009, the ICC issued its first arrest warrant against Bashir for alleged war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
Bashir has dismissed the allegations, saying they are part of a Western conspiracy. Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he is "deeply concerned" by the nature of the charges, and calls on the Sudanese government "to provide full support to the ICC, and to address issues of justice and reconciliation."
Ban Ki-moon also reiterates his call for all parties involved in Sudan's peace process to reach a comprehensive and inclusive agreement.
